Photoshop lesson handout – Create a simple collage with Photoshop CC
This is the very first assignment I give to my Photoshop students. I teach them how to use the move tool, magic eraser, and Ctrl+T to transform the images being copied from the Internet. I also teach them how to zoom in and out with the keyboard.
Objective 1: the student will use the move tool, magic eraser tool, eraser tool, and the transform function in Adobe Photoshop.
Objective 2: The student will copy and paste images from the Internet with one color backgrounds.
Objective 3: The student will use Ctrl-+ and Ctrl – to zoom in and out of the image being created.
